  • Foot Care

    Anybody has any good ideas to moisturize the feet? I've got really dry feet after coming back from Europe... main problems:

    1. Dry heels. OK, I guess this is quite common but I hate it! I've got like a THICK THICK layer of HARD skin under my heels!

    2. The skin on my feet is peeling off in patches!! Not the hard skin on the heels but the 'normal' (soft) skin on the feet.

    I use 100% shea butter on my feet and put on socks before I sleep everynight, try to buff my feet using a pumice stone as regularly as I can be bothered to but these doesn't seem to help...any suggestions??

    man i have horrible feet like you wouldn't believe!

    calluses on the balls of my foot, under the joint of the big toes, at the mini ball of foot under the small toe.

    cracked heels.

    peeling skin.

    what looks suspiciously like the beginnings of varicose veins on my feet.


    help!!

          super expensive DIAMANCEL foot file! i use #10 and it really works to get all that dead skin off your feet; use it once a week or fortnight

          TBS body butter on feet with socks (now that i can't use it on my body, i use it on my feet ); AHAVA foot cream that i've been using for ages absorbs extremely fast but leaves feet soft, hard to find; or just a good hand cream or a heavey duty cream like nivea creme should do

                    the price is because they're embedded with real diamonds, probably the man made kind or some leftover bits but that's why it exfoliates so well, read all the raves on MUA here

                        Riv's Confession

                        Returned from Luxbeauty.com with a thinner wallet...

                        I got:

                        1. Diamancel Black #11 Foot Buffer
                        The #11 combines the super callus-smoothing texture of the #20 with the format of the large #10. This revolutionary diamond Foot Buffer removes dry and rough skin like no other, leaving feet soft and smooth. Comfortable easy-to-hold rubber handle provides excellent control. Use on dry skin. 9" in length.
                        Damage: CAD$48

                        2. Diamancel Lilac # 2 Medium Nail File
                        Diamancel's most popular nail file as it is ideal for shaping and maintenance of natural nails in between manicures. 7" in length.
                        Damage: CAD$ 28

                        3. Diamancel Black # 5 Shaped File
                        The only answer to removing skin build-up on the sides of fingernails and toes. The flexible contoured shape allows easy maneuvering around and under the nails and eliminates the need to use a nipper. Use on dry skin. 7" in length. Damage: CAD$33

                        4. Took the liberty to get myself a Vanilla orange lip balm from LSOB. Damage = CAD$5

                        *runs off to hide*

                            Hey, Blububble, wasn't I the one who sold you the Diamancel file?
                            Anyway, I sold off the #10 and got myself a #11. But I hardly use it. Don't find them as effective as scrubbing lotions.

                            What work best for me is Vaseline with socks. A few days and my feet are back to normal.

                              yep it was you

                              i use these foot files interchangeably with foot lotion/socks; used to use vaseline with socks but one day it started giving me itchy rashes on my feet, very inconvenient, i think it was the vaseline
